Once the hull is cleaned up, we template the floor timbers. On this boat all of the solid wood will be teak. Here the floor timbers have been sawn out and awaiting fitting and installation.
Below we have fit and installed the floor timbers and also the cleats for the thwarts (seats).
On this boat we are building inwales with spacer blocks. This allows water to drain out when the boat is tipped, is stronger, allows things to be tied to the boat easily and also looks good. Below we are cutting the spacer blocks to length on the drill press. This gives them concave ends which look nice and are easier to sand when varnishing.
We need to complete this boat quickly, and when we have filleted all of the floors, cleats, thwarts, keelson and knees it is an all hands call to sand the interior for an epoxy sealer and varnish.
